Our current spotlight film seems to come and go, one second it's there and the next it's unavailible for viewing or downloading. Is there a faulty connexion somewhere?

I noticed that, too - in the short-term I've switched it out to another of the 'Rick's Picks' films while we try to take a look at it.

So we've just fixed what that problem was, which was highly 'amusing', actually - there were obscure, bad characters in the shot lists for some movies, and when we edited them, now we're using XML to store everything, it would save the metadata out to disc, but because of the bad characters, it would break the XML and make the films unavailable (so it looked like the server had gone down.)

Anyhow, this meant that me swapping out a new movie to be the spotlight would automatically _make_ it break, if it had a shotlist with those weird characters in them. Doh!

Should be OK now, anyhow - and some previously unavailable movies should be back online, although there was still some Prelingers that need re-converting.

Thanks,
Simon.

Ok, the problem existed in more than one location, it should stay up now.
